Nowcast | as of 12:30 PM EDT on May 24, 2015

breezy onshore winds could push more showers onshore the Treasure Coast... Through this afternoon...east winds of around 15 mph will gust over 20 mph...especially along the Atlantic coast. The breezy onshore flow will push a cluster of Atlantic showers toward coastal Martin and Saint Lucie counties...where some locally heavy downpours with gusty winds could occur. The best chance for isolated showers...possibly a thunderstorm...will be over the interior counties. Boating and surf conditions will remain poor today...with rough... choppy surf averaging 3 to 4 feet...and seas over the open Atlantic between 4 and 6 feet. Local beach patrols also report frequent...and numerous rip currents today...especially south of Sebastian Inlet.

Beach Hazard Statement
Statement as of 3:47 AM EDT on May 24, 2015

... Beach hazards statement in effect early this morning through
this evening...

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a beach
hazards statement for rough surf which is in effect early this
morning through this evening.

* Hazards... increasing rough surf is expected. Also there will be
a moderate risk for rip currents this morning and again late
this afternoon and evening.

* Timing... this morning through the evening.

* Location... all east central Florida beaches.

* Potential impacts... rough surf will cause hazardous swimming
conditions at east central Florida beaches. There will be a risk
of strong rip currents near jetties and piers.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...
a beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as rough
surf... rip currents and other hazards create life-threatening
conditions in the surf zone. Caution should be used when in or
near the water.

The best safety advice is to only enter the surf near a lifeguard.
Rough surf can often be much more dangerous than it appears
while standing on the beach. Heavy breaking waves can knock you
off a sandbar into deeper water.

If you become caught in a current... never attempt to swim
directly against it... as you will tire quickly. Instead... tread
water and swim at an angle away from the current. Then once out of
the current... swim directly back toward the beach.
